About the speaker
Veerle Helsen is a journalist and book author.
In 2017, she took a surf sabbatical and travelled solo in a camper along the coasts of Spain and Portugal. Her book Surf & Stay tells the story of this coastal, salty-spiced adventure. When the book was published, she decided to quit her job and go surfing the world. Eight months living in a camper changed her ideas about life, work and money drastically.
She now divides her time between travelling, surfing and freelance work. She writes as a journalist for Belgian media Knack Weekend and Sabato, and international publications like The Guardian or Het Financiële Dagblad.
